We explored previously how reusing your existing slides can be a great help since it saves so much of your time. While bringing up the Reuse Slides Task Pane that enables you to add selected slides to the active presentation, there is another easier and more intuitive way to reuse your slides. You can drag selected slides from the source presentation and drop them within the newer presentation. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to reuse slides through this drag and drop process within PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.
Do you want to add cover thumbnails to your YouTube videos? Moreover, what exactly does a YouTube cover thumbnail mean? Let's first answer the second question! A YouTube thumbnail is what you see before you play the video. More often than not, this thumbnail content is automatically sourced by YouTube from the video, but you can create a high-quality thumbnail yourself using PowerPoint!
The Ribbon made its debut in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac. Unlike the PowerPoint versions on Windows though, the Ribbon did not replace all the menus and toolbars that were found in PowerPoint 2008 and older Mac versions. The Ribbon is essentially a long strip that's fixed in size so that you cannot change its width or height. The Ribbon in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac includes several tabs and each tab is named.
Unlike with typical programs, Sway was created from the ground-up to be a program that allows easy sharing. Once you create a Sway, you will want to share your Sway with colleagues, family, and even friends. Sway provides some awesome sharing options, and we will explore them in this tutorial.

Reusing your existing slides can be a great help: first you need not recreate stuff you already have and secondly you are saving so much time that you can use more effectively to practice your presentation! Having said that, always start by creating an outline of your presentation. This is important because it gives you an opportunity to plan your slides all over again. Thereafter, reuse any existing slides. PowerPoint provides a quick command that locates specific slides, and enables you to add it to the active presentation. While this process works the same way in all versions of PowerPoint, there are small interface changes -- in this tutorial, we'll show you how to reuse slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.
We first show you what happens to all the feedback that PowerPoint users send to Microsoft. We then bring you several resources for free images and textures.

PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn about changing Slide Layouts, the Live Preview feature, and switching views between open presentations. PowerPoint 2013 users can explore hyperlinks for Action Buttons. Finally, do not miss the new discussions and templates of this week!

Once you create a presentation on PowerPoint for iPad, or even if you open an existing one from a cloud location, you will then be able to share it with others right inside PowerPoint. So how do you do that?
The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations -- one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
